I am listening to some music on my iPad, from iTunes. Sometimes I switch to the youtube app, because I want to just watch some scientific videos (mostly text and images, no sound or useless music), but then and automatically, music from iTunes stops! How can I disable this?

I am not sure if you can overlay itunes music with youtube music.. even though you dont want the youtube one.. i think only 1 audio source can play at a time.. regardless if its muted or not.. but maybe there is hack.. not sure. –  ppumkin Jan 23 '12 at 12:19

@flow, there may be a way if you jailbreak your device. You could try asking JailbreakQA. Anyway, this question is off-topic for Super User and will be closed soon. –  iglvzx Mar 3 '12 at 5:23
